Seven plus years ago we sat down to consider adopting a dog. A chihuahua jumped up on my lap his name was Rudy, a 7 year old with a heart problem. An unbeatable pet. He was my baby and he loved to cuddle. He loved to go for walks, loved people, and never barked. We live in an independent living facility (lots of elderly) where everyone loved him. He went up to all people and let them pet him. He was like my service dog. We unfortunately had to put him to sleep on May 29 of this year. He was in kidney failure and his heart was giving out. We are heart broken and so is the entire community. We miss him dearly and yes, we need another Rudy!
